    27 Products Parents Say Are Totally "Worth It" For Their Kids

    Some may call it a splurge; others will call it an investment. Either way, both you and your children are going to benefit big time.

    1. A Boppy nursing pillow to help not only with feeding but also propping babies up, moving them into tummy time, and helping them sit upright. That's one hard-working pillow worthy of a place in your home.

    2. A Lovery activity gym and playmat (which is washable) for developing your baby's physical, cognitive, visual, and motor learning skills. So much fun (learning) packed into one playset!

    3. A foldable Oxo Tot 2-in-1 Go Potty because when they gotta go, you know they gotta go! Like, right now! No bathroom? No problem; extend the legs, and voila, you've got an instant commode. This potty also lays flat on regular toilets for a more comfortable seat on the throne.

    4. A fancy and famous French giraffe named Sophie who's been chewed on and chewed up by teething babies for over 50 years. Well worth the investment, too!

    5. A hypoallergenic Newton baby crib mattress that's both breathable (meaning babies can sleep face down with no worry) and washable (so you'll never have to see any pee, poo, or puke stains). Also, it's 100% recyclable when it's time to graduate to the big kid bed.

    6. A LÍLLÉbaby six-Position ergonomic baby and child carrier so parents can go "hands-free" and actually get stuff done knowing that their child is actually strapped to them and can't get away.

    7. An Angelcare baby bath support, because it's hella hard to clean squirmy little babies. Also, it's mildew-resistant and you can even hang it up in the shower to dry.

    8. A Baby Nasal Aspirator NoseFrida (aka The Snotsucker), which many parents will tell you, is an essential element worthy of any new parent's arsenal of baby gear.

    9. A time- and lifesaving/changing formula dispensing machine for mixing and warming consistently perfect formula-based ba-bas in a matter of mere seconds.

    10. An easy-to-wipe-clean Skip Hop portable changing pad with wipes dispenser that turns nearly any flat (and secure) surface in the most convenient place to deal with a dirty diaper like some sort of bomb disposal expert.

    11. An electric nail trimmer for giving your baby's Wolverine-like claws a supersafe mani/pedi without the need for unwieldy clippers on unsteady little hands.

    12. A super-spacious Evenflo Pivot Xplore all-terrain stroller wagon to push or pull one to two children on-road or off. Plus there are plenty of pockets and a basket for storage and the dual UPF 50+ canopies mean you can spend even more time rolling outdoors.

    13. A Munchkin "Warm Glow" wipe warmer so that baby butts (and parents' hands, come to think of it) never suffer the wintry touch of a damp, chilly wipe ever again. Plus, it has a night light with a 10-minute auto shutoff function.

    14. A 32-piece set of Magna-Tiles that's built to last, especially when it comes to building all manner of shapes, animals, and vehicles. Legit fun for the whole fam and worth the investment.

    15. A Nanit Pro Smart baby monitor and floor stand for next-level, 24/7 information gathering (aka spying) on your child from any location via your smartphone, which will help everyone in your home get a little more sack time.

    16. A set of foam play mat tiles that you can arrange in multiple design patterns and thankfully won't clash with the rest of the room (because gray and cream go with everything).

    17. A Levoit H13 True HEPA filter air purifier so your baby's room will be free of allergens, pet hair, dander, smoke, mold, odor, and large dust particles and will remove up to "99.97% of airborne contaminants."

    18. A Diaper Genie that when positioned next to a changing table will be the quickest, most efficient, and least stinky way of disposing of an endless amount of disposable diapers.

    19. A Skip Hop 3-Stage Interactive Activity Center packed with, well, a ton of activities which will grow with your child (and eventually turn into a play table once they graduate to their next level of toys).

    20. A contactless, smart digital thermometer for taking temps without even having to make contact on skin (super useful for sleeping or fussy children). Store up for eight family member temperature histories too!

    21. An AmazonBasics portable baby travel window blackout shade with suction cups so your baby (who's used to sleeping in the deep dark of their room) can easily adjust to new napping locations.

    22. A 4moms MamaRoo multi-motion baby swing for finding the right motion and speed (there are five options for both) in order to get your little one calm, cozy, and (hopefully) very sleepy (while parents can sort of take a break and get things done within eyeshot).

    23. A rechargeable, three-speed flexible stroller fan with three LED setting (for a night-light) so the kids (and you) can keep cool while you're out strolling under the hot sun.

    24. A high-fidelity white noise machine because you can't put a price on a good night's sleep (for babies and parents). This one boasts 20 unique nonlooping sounds, which should help to insure no sudden wake-ups from little ones.

    25. A smart, wearable, easy-to-use Elvie (single) electric breast pump for a smaller, lighter, and quieter way to enhance lactation and efficiently store milk, all controlled and tracked from the app. Now you can pump practically from anywhere with no problems!

    26. A Canopy humidifier with dishwasher-safe parts that can hydrate rooms up to 500 square feet. Also uses paper filters and employs sensors to run until the water tank is empty (preventing mold). As an added bonus, there's a built-in aroma diffusion function too!

    27. A portable highchair so your little dining companion always has a comfortable, safe, and secure place to sit at the table.
